I don't 'spam' you, or knowingly provide any email addresses for spam purposes.
   I do ask that you maintain a VALID email address within your profile.
   We're getting a lot of 'bounced' emails at our board  email account from members.
  These are usually generated when you've either checked a box to subscribe to a thread, and be notified when there's a response,  or somebody on the board is trying to contact you, or when you've intially signed up for the board.

 I'll generate a few 'bulk' emails a few times a year to all board members, and try to do it only in an emergency, or when I can pass on multiple chunks of information.
  Every time I do a bulk email, I get LOTS of bounced emails!

  Please check the email address that's listed in your profile!

   I'll be doing an emailing to all members soon, with the purpose of weeding out 'bogus' and inactive accounts.

  If your email address isn't valid, your account is subject to be deleted!

   I need to do this to protect the sanctity, and safety of the board....plus it's a real pain when you get 'bounced' emails from people who've subscribed to a thread with an invalid email address!

  Worse comes to worse, your email account is the only way for ADMINS to get in touch with you if you have problems logging in to the board.
   
  We don't have much spam, or seem to be a magnet to 'drama queens' on this board....and I'd like to keep it that way! :motorsmile:

  PLEASE check your email address, as listed in your user profile!
Our ADMIN email box is getting flooded with bounced emails from automatic emails being sent to members, at their request.
IF you click on 'subscribe to this thread', (On purpose, or by mistake) to be notified by email if somebody responds to a message, an email gets sent out automatically every time somebody replies to that message.
If your email address is screwed up, it gets bounced to our mail box.

  I'm going to send a rare, mass email out to the registered members of this board, and am getting annoyed enough to spend a couple of hours deleting accounts that are connected to bounced emails!

  Please check your email address as listed in your user profile!


  Maintaining a valid email address in your profile is one of the few requirements of this board to use it....dammit, check your email addresses! :danger:
